So Iíve found some videos, but none are for the 2017 Escape with the 2.0L Ecoboost. And none do a great job of helping me find the fill hole. Does anyone out there have a 2017 Escape with the 2.0L? Does it still have a fill hole in the engine compartment? Any description or photos would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

OP, I sure hope you didn't drain the fluid first. Yikes!

Rest assured though, it can be filled somehow. Our 2006 MB C230 (bought new, well cared for, but a total POS) had a sealed for life auto trans. I serviced it regularly anyway. It was filled through the drain hole via a special attachment connected to my Mity-Vac pump. It was easy to do once I had the proper adapter. Worst case, that will be your situation.

No, no. Just researching for future reference. So it isn't an emergency. I'm just hoping someone can enlighten me.

Here u go. It's not a tube with a dip stick, but a plug that come out of a very short rubber hose. In my 2017 Fusion I am doing 30K D-F with MC Mercon LV. The video shows it.

Yeah, I'm just having trouble locating it. Do you have to remove the airbox to even see it?

My MB E320 CDI Diesel has No Dipstick for oil or ATF. Have to check oil from the Dash Menu. Otherwise an outstanding vehicle.
